Chelsea vs Manchester City - Premier League Preview and Odds

Saturday 30 September, 2017 17:30pm - Stamford Bridge

Premier League

In what is without a doubt the standout fixture of this weekend`s Premier League schedule, reigning champions Chelsea will welcome current title favourites Manchester City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The home side will be brimming with confidence after pulling off a dramatic 2-1 win away to Champions League rivals Atletico Madrid in midweek. A last gasp winner from Michy Batshuayi propelled the Blues into poll position in their group and dispelled any suggestions that Chelsea were suffering from a crisis of form. The fact that it was Atleti`s first ever European defeat to an English side further amplified to significance of the result.

In the league, Antonio Conte`s men have overcome their early season wobble and come into this game on the back of a 4-0 win at Stoke City in which Alvaro Morata netted a hat-trick. The Spaniard now has seven goals in seven games for his new club who are barely missing the now-departed Diego Costa.

Opponents Manchester City suffered a major blow this week when it was announced that striker Sergio Aguero had been involved in a car accident in Amsterdam on Thursday night and will be out for several weeks. Of course, Pep Guardiola can count on the likes of Gabriel Jesus to step in but the Argentine`s absence could still have an impact on their results over the next month or two.

The Citizens have now won their last seven competitive matches in a row and are setting the pace in the league with a total haul of 16 points and 21 goals with just two conceded.
